Because my friends are literate and aware of history, they will know what I mean when I say that today is a day that will live on in infamy. But I suspect that the average American on the street would probably not remember where the quote comes from, or why December 7th is significant. Here on the 70 year anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, I'm encouraged that most people have at least let the day itself retire into being just another day on the calendar. I wonder if 60 years from now people will look on 9-11 with the same lack of emotional urgency? For the sake of moving forward, I certainly hope so.
